Improbable's Devoted and Disgruntled Roadshow

Thu 25 Jul 2013

Last year, Improbable travelled to 28 venues around the UK to start a nationwide conversation about Theatre and the Arts. It was diverse, exciting, fascinating and incredibly useful. Using Open Space Technology, the Devoted and Disgruntled Roadshow connected communities, inspired practitioners and opened the door for change.

This year, we're back on the road, travelling to new places and bringing you the opportunity to be part of a national network of practitioners and audiences. Devoted and Disgruntled uses Open Space technology which gives anyone the chance to propose a starting point for discussion, then take part in one of these conversations, flit between them all, or head to the bar. We open the space, you create the agenda.

Come join the conversation.

' ... everyone is there on equal terms, whether you're the artistic director of a major regional theatre or a first-year student just beginning to make work. In a theatre world that is often competitive and jealously guards knowledge like a miser, this is a place where expertise and experience are shared with real generosity and no strings attached. Devoted and Disgruntled is not just a talking shop – it actually spurs action and initiatives such as mentoring schemes, the sharing of skills and spaces, and people coming together creatively and making work.'
